Gorgeous aromas of honey, camphor, beeswax, orange pith, pink grapefruit and bergamot. There’s only a faint hint of petrol, which barely warrants a comment but for the fact it’s Mosel Riesling we’re drinking here.

Palate is sweet but light on its feet, with a slight bitter orange edge to the mouthfeel. It’s rich, but airy at the same time - that unique quality of Mosel Riesling.

A hedonistic Riesling, utterly drinkable in its prime.

Has aged beautifully. Finally found the right moment to open, German Grandparents in town
The vigor of its youth has calmed into silky adulthood. Perfectly balanced. Not a hard edge to be found.

There's something uncanny about the "HERRENBERG" vineyard in most warm, opulent years such as this 2007--pink grapefruit, passion fruit, lime peel etc...a tropical fruit bowl that soars out of the glass at you--a magical, sensory experience--WOW!!!

1985 vintage was layered and focused! So much brightness and acidity in this. Classic Ruwer and drinking beautifully.

Clearly spent some time sitting in a hot warehouse, but with more integrity than the last bottle from the same source. Delicious, but as much for what it should have been as for what it is.
